With a spectrum of exquisite lehengas and saris becoming a regular choice, we suggest think beyond the usual and opt for anarkalis. Experiment with anarkalis for Engagements; think traditional in red and gold, floral patterns for summers, and unconventional hues such as black and purple. We round up Bollywood’s finest for inspiration.
Sonam Kapoor in Masaba Gupta
Red and gold is a perfect combination for engagement ceremonies. This Masaba Gupta voluminous flared anarkali on Sonam Kapoor is serving us major goals. However, we suggest veer away from heavy jewellery with an outfit as decadent as this.
Diana Penty in Manish Malhotra
Opting for unorthodox hues is never a bad idea. This Manish Malhotra floor-length anarkali on Diana Penty paired with an exquisite floral dupatta is a winning look for an engagement. Pair it with a beautiful choker.
Tamannaah Bhatia in Rimple and Harpreet
If it’s your engagement going all out is never a bad idea. This black and gold Rimple and Harpreet anarkali on Tamannaah Bhatia is the right kind of colour fusion to stand out.
Alia Bhatt in Anamika Khanna
Leave it to ace couturier Anamika Khanna for major anarkali inspiration. Notice the heavy embroideries at the flares? That’s what makes this piece exquisite. Also, colour purple once again is reigning strong in our colour wheel.
Kajol in Manish Malhotra
We love this Manish Malhotra ensemble and its scalloped dupatta. Once again, the cue is go minimal with the jewellery.
Sonakshi Sinha in Anita Dongre
If you are looking for something experimental, this Anita Dongre sleeveless jacket anarkali is the look. Also, veer away from everything floral. The crane-inspired embroidery is major.
Kriti Sanon in Tarun Tahiliani
Mid-length anarkalis for engagements with shararas? Go for it. This white and beige Tarun Tahiliani ensemble on Kriti Sanon is perfect for a summer engagement.
Priyanka Chopra in Anushree Reddy
Tones of white, creams, and metallics make for a perfect engagement look. Who better than Priyanka Chopra in this Anushree Reddy ensemble to school us. Besides its intricate embroidery, we love the tulle infusions peaking from the hemline.
